Join us and Chicago literary lovers for our annual fundraiser which supports our free programs (like An Evening with the Dissolve) and scholarships to literacy tutors in Chicago via our partners, Open Books and 826CHI. In our first two years, we were able to offer ten scholarships. This year, we're doubling our efforts to offer 20 scholarships!
We love Chicago, we love its literary community, and we aim to keep writers working in Chicago! Join us for this fun and festive evening.
Each ticket includes:
- One drink
- Silent auction
- Live entertainment
You'll enjoy readings by Christine Sneed (Little Known Facts) and Eric Charles May (Bedrock Faith), with a performance by The Q Brothers. (They do hip-hop Shakespeare. Trust us, you'll want to see it. These guys are A-mazing!) To keep us moving along, Elysabeth Alfano of Fear No ART and The Dinner Party will emcee the evening.
$50 for one; or bring a friend and you each save $5!
